  • Far too many people. The facilities are dilapidated (barriers that move: this is not reassuring). In addition, everything is done for the tourist to spend money. Paid parking, boutique in Bazard, restaurant with tables in numbers... It's a shame because the site itself is pretty enough.

  • A magical place. Be careful, you have to walk and it is better to be equipped with walking shoes because floor a little slippery in places. No stroller. Allow 3:00 minimum if you want to go around ... plan the day and sandwiches if you want to think outside the box... The different waterfalls are really beautiful, it's a must of the Jura
